Located in the countryside of Cold Spring, New York, on a 225 acre farm,The Glynwood Center for Regional Food and Farming is an organization serving food and farming changemakers from New York’s Hudson Valley and beyond. Glynwood advances local food production here in our region, as well as educates a national audience about efforts to regionalize food and agriculture. We are inspired by, and contribute to, aligned work far beyond the borders of the Hudson Valley.
In addition to being a pioneer in the food and farming world, we share our beautiful property with clients through weddings, photoshoots, retreats and private events.
In 1929, the financier George Perkins, his wife Linn, and his mother Evelyna Ball Perkins, purchased land that became Glynwood Farm. They brought with them a deep conservation ethic, inspired by Mr. Perkins’ father – George Walbridge Perkins – who in the late 19th century led the way to the creation of the Palisades Interstate Parkway Commission, and served as its first President.
In pursuit of our mission to ensure the Hudson Valley is a region defined by food, where farming thrives, we train farmers, empower changemakers and create coalitions that advance regional food.
On the farm we practice regenerative agriculture and train young farmers in relation to a regional food system.
A better regional food system starts with you.
With your thoughtful gift, you will be training and developing the farmers and food professionals who will build a healthy, regenerative and vibrant regional food system.
